Get out the weed whacker

It really astounds me at the volume of "stuff" I have collected over my 5 years in SL.  I have been quite the pack rack.  Holding on to things that I will probably never rez or wear in my SLifetime.  Now it's become some sort of crazy game to weed through it every time I am in world.

This post was inspired by Gracie Kendal.  Here is the link to the post on her website. :)

Linden Lab Introduces SL Share



On Wednesday, LL introduced SL Share for their Release Candidate viewer. It seems like a nice option although I personally think the official viewer is already bad to navigate for starters. Not sure if this idea will be well received or if there are plans to introduce it in 3rd party viewers. The plus side would be that SL would get more exposure to the Facebook audience. Will it encourage more to join SL? Time will only tell. I am sharing the link to Inara Pey who blogs extensively about SL and you can follow the comments if you like and make your own informed decision. https://modemworld.wordpress.com/2013/09/25/linden-lab-launches-sl-share-and-a-look-at-the-viewer/

Feeling Fall-ish

Fall is probably my favorite season in-world and out.  I guess it's the reflective part of me.  Things begin to slow down more after all the busy Summer activities and events.

Seasons are quite different here in the San Francisco Bay Area.  We do have our "micro climates"  This means that you can have cool weather on the bay but the temps heat up as you move inland by about 20 degrees difference.  One of the things I do envy about other places is the change in the colors that are shown in pictures like the one here.

The plus side is that in SL we can create any type of environment we choose if we have the space.  Beach theme sims seem to be quite popular these days.  Sometimes when I am out exploring the mainland, I come across the cold snowing sims and almost shiver.  I hope to create this more autumn type environment on my sim.  I have a few ideas and I may even post pictures here. 

Hugs

Food Fair 2013

There are so many awesome events in SL that it can be overwhelming.  This one caught my eye today and so I am sharing it with you.  It's the 1st annual Food Fair.  I was impressed by the new Ham Dinner created by Kaz over at Pilot.  Mesh never tasted this good  It's great to see creators who will push mesh beyond clothes and buildings.  So go and check them out.  More info at : http://officialfoodfair.wordpress.com/

Love Wins!!

Today the Supreme Court has ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional. Proposition 8 was also struck down. That means the federal government will now recognize marriage for same-sex couples and couples will be able to marry in 13 states and the District of Columbia, including (and once again in) our nation’s most populous state, California.

This is a very historic moment for the entire LGBT community.  And even though we celebrate this with great joy, we need to remind ourselves that the battle for equality remains ongoing.

You can be sure  that as the community gathers to celebrate San Francisco Gay Pride this coming weekend the party will be non-stop.  Let’s also take time to pause and reflect on how fortunate we are to finally come to this point in our own personal history and look with renewed hope to what lies ahead.
Be safe and always remember that no matter how bad things seem, in the end —  Love always wins!

Happy 5th Rez Day Me!


5 years ago today, I rezzed in-world and found myself at Boots Beach. It was there that I met a couple of great guys who helped me get started. Jakec Hotshot and Eddi Haskell. In the early hours (2 or 3am) they gave this noob a complete makeover and even a job as a host at Jake's Club. Probably the most important thing that has stuck with me was the message Jake told me -- "always pay it forward". We all started out with so much to learn in SL and it is important that as we move on that we never forget that and remember to share with others on the journey. I have so many great memories and pics of those days. I may create an album of them. Thanks to everyone who has been a part of my SL adventure.

Adonis Heights Radio

One of my latest projects has been my growing connection with the Adonis Heights Group.  Part of that connection involves a new 24/7 radio station that I created for entertainment and advertising.

Adonis Heights Radio was started a few months ago and I currently run marketing, programming and management.  We are already off to a great start this year as we became a Media Sponsor for Menswear Fashion Week 2013.  If you visit the event, this is the station that is set to play there.  We are very happy to be a part of this event.

If you would like to learn more about the station, then feel free to send an inworld IM or notecard to Rockridge Constantine.  So tune in and if you already do then thanks for listening.

One of the many things I enjoy about Second Life is the ability to explore some well designed and creative sims.  I heard about and saw pictures of this region named Hazardous so I decided to check it out.

As you can see by this picture, it is a very rural looking scene.  It sorta reminded me growing up in the California Central Valley.  The landscape was almost real.  Go and check it out http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Misali/57/209/54
